On the sidelines of the presentation of its new smartphones, Xiaomi has lifted the veil on its brand new connected watch : la Mi Watch. Sport oriented, it would notably have an autonomy of more than two weeks. We detail all this.
Xiaomi has just unveiled the contours of its huge 8K TV. But the Chinese automaker has more than one trick up its sleeve. He has indeed just presented his new connected watch., la Mi Watch. Very light (32 grams without the bracelet), it is notably equipped with a round AMOLED screen of 1,39 inches whose definition amounts to 454 x 454 pixels.
Its luminosity is 450 nits. What fearlessly brave the sun's rays, even the most insidious. Users will also have the choice of more than a hundred different dials. It will also be necessary to decide between six different colors of bracelets, to know : bleu, orange, noir, yellow, vert, beige.
But it is in terms of autonomy that Xiaomi has struck a big blow. With its battery, of 420 mAh, the Mi Watch would thus be able to hold 16 days if you only use your essential functions - i.e. without bluetooth and location. A sacred performance. Forget wireless charging, however, since it can boost its battery only thanks to a magnetic dock (two hours of charging required).
Aimed in particular at sports-loving users, the Mi Watch offers a selection of 117 workouts plus a heart carder, a compass, a barometer, a GPS, a gyroscope and an accelerometer. You can also monitor the level of oxygen in the blood. Like the Apple Watch Series 6, I KNOW, Series 3 and Nike now supplied without a mains charger.
In short, everything you need to properly support your sporting practice on land but also in the water. Waterproof, Xiaomi's watch can thus be immersed in 50 meters deep. Enough to familiarize yourself with sea creatures in breaststroke !
Finally, the Mi Watch will be able to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth 5.0. Able to support Google Assistant, it is also compatible with Alexa, Amazon's voice assistant. If you are seduced by this new model, note that it will be available in France from the first trimester 2021. It will be necessary to pay 129,99 euros to acquire it. A much lower price than the Apple Watch Series 6 which costs the trifle of 429 euros.
